Punch Up! – Resistance & Glitter

STAND UP / DRAG / BURLESQUE

Punch Up! – Resistance & Glitter brings together the hottest names and sharpest minds in stand up, burlesque and drag! After two sold-out nights at Mad House Helsinki this spring, the club will move to Korjaamo’s Kulmasali for fall 2018.

The show in February will be interpreted into Finnish Sign Language.

Each evening’s program is provided by Jamie MacDonald, Miss Vinyl Envy, Juuso Kekkonen, and their awesome guests, directing their weapons-grade merriment at bullies, bigots and the powerful. Both evenings are their own separate iconoclastic shows full of laughter and glitter!

In February we are excited and proud to present our first ever international guest: award-winning spoken word artist Subira Wahogo from the UK! They will be performing their solo show "Subira" on 15.2.!

Other performers will be published closer to the show in the Facebook event. All shows are in English.


Subira Wahogo: SUBIRA

Subira, in Swahili, means patience. Something Subira Wahogo is quickly running out of. Join them for a night of spoken word poetry about being queer, black, and angry. Weaving together the personal and political, through experiences and imaginations, spoken with rage, softness, and laughter. Witness patience at its end, queerness in its multitudes and blackness at its fullness. If you like poetry about punching people, yelling at racists, and having lots of feelings, come through!

"I don't even like poetry but that was great" (Some guy one time)

"A poetic force to be reckoned with, Subira Wahogo and their debut show was a testimony to spoken word at its freshest."
(Brodie Crellin, DIVA Magazine, read the full review here.)
